"We retained FORMA to design a modern interior for our new construction home overlooking woods. Andreas and Larry focused on how we as a family would use our new space and applied those insights to material selection, furniture layout, etc.. As a unifying design element, they covered one interior wall in stone-look tile, rising through all four levels and wrapping around both sides of the wall. Ceiling bulkheads combined with LED strip lighting and extensive use of recessed MR16s created a dramatic effect in our main living areas. They took advantage of a wall of windows lining the stairwell by designing an open-tread stairwell with thick oak treads and glass railings. Guidance on furniture and trim selection resulted in a sleek modern space that somehow also feels warm. At our “ thank you" party for neighbors, we received many, many compliments on their work."
I've engaged Andreas and FORMA Design for two separate endeavors, each one as gratifying as the next. The first project involved a grand, custom piece of artwork which remains to this day, the jaw dropping centerpiece of my home in DC. Andreas was by my side from the initial "chin scratching" of how to address my unique design challenge, through the dramatic installation, and subsequent celebration of a magnificent job, well done. On this confidence, my small renovation company later enlisted FORMA Design for the comprehensive interior design of a multi-unit, multi-million dollar condo project. Again, a spectacular outcome. They delivered top quality, stunning results...on time, with consummate professionalism. The accolades for the finished product just kept coming. For my next project, whenever that may be, I know exactly where to go!
I am a two-time client. I love the work they do. Clean, modern and so timeless. My last project with them was almost 10 years ago and the place looks as if it could have been renovated yesterday. They are seasoned professionals and they will take care of you. I was living overseas when my last project was done. This required great communication skills and adaptability and they have those plenty. It worked like a charm. Kudos guys!
We've done two projects now with Andreas, Larry, and Juan and have been very happy with the work. We originally did a full renovation of the house minus the basement and then completed the basement once the kids got older. We had bought a colonial and wanted a much more contemporary interior. The team took the time to understand what we wanted and how we live our lives, iterated the design with us to our liking, and has the patience to put up with changes of heart and mind that invariably happens. We love the outcome (and how we live in our house). If you’re looking for great design (in contemporary style), we would strongly recommend FORMA.
"I hired FORMA to remodel my 2-BR loft-style condo in the Logan Circle area of Washington, DC. In short, I'm very pleased with the result and I'd definitely hire them again. I was happy with the ways in which they pushed me in directions I wouldn't have considered, and in cases where they recommended against ideas that I floated, I almost uniformly realized a bit down the road that they were entirely correct. The aesthetic -- modern and airy while also being warm and welcoming -- is impeccable. I also was extremely pleased by their response time; it was rare that emails or phone calls wouldn’t be answered within a few hours, and often it was quicker."
